SPE WA Reducing Net Carbon Footprint Webinar: Prospects and Challenges for Carbon Capture and Storage: A California Perspective

Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is a critical technology for deep decarbonization of the electricity and industrial sectors. As the 5th largest economy in the world, California is an interesting case study for examining the role that CCUS can play in achieving its ambitious mandate for a zero emission electrical grid by 2045 and goals for economy wide net zero emissions by 2045.
